It in­cludes Perl bi­na­ries, a com­piler (gcc) + re­lated tools, all the ex­ter­nal li­braries (crypto, graph­ics, xml, etc), a lot of re­ally great mod­ules pre-in­stalled, cpanm - a nice util­ity that makes mod­ule in­stal­la­tion eas­ier, all the bun­dled

Ac­tiveS­tate Perl was pre-in­stalled by an­other ap­pli­ca­tion which hap­pened to use it for some heavy text ma­nip­u­lat­ing
